Summer Conditioning
 1) Summer conditioning is VERY IMPORTANT
 Why? Builds the base necessary to reach their potential
during the season and their cross country career.
 Strength (with more strength they develop more foot
speed and better form)
 Mileage (Safe and Smart)
 We will not only run, but also have modified insanity
workouts 3 nights a week(extremely important)
 Core Training
 2) Monday-Thursday 6:30 pm @ Tribble Mill Park in the parking lot
near the playground
 3) MUST HAVE A PHYSICAL BEFORE THEY CAN START.
 4) What do they need to bring? Water, yoga mat, maybe a snack
for afterwards, good trail shoes (their preference, completely up to
them)
 5) This is the most important part of our season!
Nutrition
 Most importantly, they need Energy
 Whole Grains (extremely important brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat
pasta, quinoa noodles, oatmeal)
 Vegetables (focus on Greens; kale, collard greens, bak choy, etc…
wide variety is always best)
 Proteins (lean proteins-beans, high quality chicken or fish)
 Plenty of water
 Stay away from fast food
 Eat throughout the day (do not just eat 3 times a day-if you are
hungry eat)
 Energy bars, fruit, cereal, pb/jelly sandwiches on whole wheat bread.
 Often times this aspect is ignored when you are this young, I know I
did, but it is extremely important to develop these healthy habits now.
Season Information
 Important Dates for the Summer
 May 28th Monday 1st Day of conditioning
 July 1st through the 8th (Dead Week) Extremely important for
the kids to still meet-I cannot be there.
 July 14th-21st-My Summer Vacation at the beach. (To get
better, the work you do when the coach is not there is the most
important!)
